WHAT IS IT
Zinc is an essential nutrient that can help the body inside and out. Zinc has fantastic healing properties and can help with skin irritations like itching, redness, peeling and inflammation.
Some of Zinc's benefits include cell regeneration, helping to balance oil production, reducing the appearance of large pores, evening skin tone and pigmentation and boosting collagen production. Because Zinc helps to preserve moisture and hydration, it is useful in anti-aging treatments.
Zinc is also a great addition to an anti-acne regimen, as it is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and an astringent.
Zinc can act as a protective physical barrier, and shield the skin from the harmful elements. It acts as a mirror, deflecting harmful UVA and UVB, and Zinc sunscreens can be a great alternative to chemical sunscreens for those with sensitive skin.
